Dental Nutrition

Young woman with gorgeous healthy smile

The foods you eat can dramatically impact the health of your smile. Sugar, for instance, is the main source of fuel for oral bacteria, so a diet high in sugar will often lead to an increased risk of tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. This is why our practice recommends that our patients try to consume products sweetened with xylitol as often as they can. It is a natural sweetener that has been shown to strengthen the teeth against tooth decay and cavities similar to fluoride, and it can be found online, at Whole Foods, Vitamin Shoppe, and other local health food stores.
